One year, when Julian was very young and Emily was about 8, I put all of the Christmas presents under the tree. Emily then proceeded to pick up every present for her, squeeze it, shake it, smell it and then announce what it was. True, she didn't know the title of the book, video etc... but it still seemed a bit disappointing that she knew what she was getting.
As a result, I have not put any presents under the tree until Christmas Eve but this year the boys really wanted me to put them out, they were desperate for me to, they would do anything, they would be really, really, REALLY good.
So I relented - under strict instructions that they were not to touch any of their presents.
Which they didn't, but I did find them like this at one stage - bums up, with their heads firmly planted under the tree, not touching but searching for their presents.
I guess it's all part of the magic of Christmas.
ps - please note that the 15 year old has her head under that tree as well, highlighting that you are never too old for Christmas :)

my camera has been out of action. why you ask??? well because louis got a game for christmas which required two 'AA' batteries and naturally they took mine. and yes, i realise that christmas was weeks ago - but you know how it is - when you remember the batteries you're not in a shop and when you are in a shop you are thinking about chocolate, not batteries.
anyway, i'm thinking of making some changes to my blog. i want a new name but i'm having coming up with something........any ideas?
also, emily has moved from my blog (which she rarely participated in) and has started her own. visit her here and say hello :)
till next time
take care, be happy
